3. Description:

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm packages provide the
user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM.

Security Fix(es):

* QEMU: slirp: heap buffer overflow while reassembling fragmented datagrams
(CVE-2018-11806)

* QEMU: i386: multiboot OOB access while loading kernel image
(CVE-2018-7550)

Red Hat would like to thank Jskz - Zero Day Initiative (trendmicro.com) for
reporting CVE-2018-11806 and Cyrille Chatras (Orange.com) and CERT-CC
(Orange.com) for reporting CVE-2018-7550.

Bug Fix(es):

* Previously, live migrating a Windows guest in some cases caused the guest
to become unresponsive. This update ensures that Real-time Clock (RTC)
interrupts are not missed, which prevents the problem from occurring.
(BZ#1596302)
